Celebrity stylist, Jeni Elizabeth is one of my favorite people ever! I had the chance to interview her in 2011 when she was a stylist on the hit show “Jersey Shore”, and I’m so thankful to call her a friend. Over the years she has worked with the likes of Carrie Underwood, Victoria Beckham, Marissa Wiokur, Paris Hilton and many more. I always look to Jeni for style inspiration, she is the best in the business!

Jeni graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Communication/Journalism and later moved to New York City to study Fashion Merchandising at FIT where she landed a “great job at Henri Bendel working with A-List celebs on a day to day basis.” Jeni ran the women’s department for five years before moving to Los Angeles to work as an independent stylist. She credits Michael Palladino whom she worked under at Henri Bendel for inspiring her new found career in styling. Jeni also credits her sister, Karri, Supervising Producer at the Bachelor/Bachelorette for inspiring and helping her along the way.

    While working with Sally Ann Salsano, creator of the Jersey Shore, Jeni was called at the end of the second season to fly in for a Press Shoot. She had a great time with the cast but had “no idea” that the show would be such a phenomenon! Jeni shared (much to my surprise) “that the cast was found on myspace.” The cast left this month for Italy to shoot new episodes, most likely airing in July or August.

    When asked what trends she’s coveting for spring and summer, Jeni stated that she’s loving “bright colors, lightweight military jackets, ballerina flats, platform wedges, Stella McCartney slouchy simple cargo pants and wide leg jeans – with her favorite denim brands being AG and J Brand.” As for handbags, it’s all about the “tall totes- Balenciaga and the Fendi overnight bag.” For accessories you can’t go wrong with “statement rings, big colored rings.” She loves the “simple white look, lace dresses, longer hems, great beaded belt stacks, cuffed bracelets, barrettes and pops of color on white.”

As a mutual lover of sweatpants, Jeni loves dressing them up with J.Crew and Banana Republic scarves – “wrap it up and it dresses you up.” She’s also a huge fan of jumpsuits, especially BCBG with flip flops or heels and pairs Jersey Shore star, Jenni JWow in them frequently. One of her favorite accessories are bear paw boots and has even gotten Snooki hooked on them. When asked what her least favorite trend is, Jeni stated “vests. I’ve never put someone in a vest.”

Jeni feels it’s important to “be yourself. I’m not a matchy-match girl. I love to have fun with style, fun with color. Furry boots with denim shorts.” She loves being around those who are “bubbly, fun and loud” and that “at the end of the day my job is rewarding, I get to assist people to feel better about who they are. I never put clients in something they don’t feel comfortable in. It’s important to have fun with it.”
